FLINT--BEECHER, Michigan, June 8, 1953, F5 tornado. 1953 was a particularly bad year for tornadoes, with five F5 rated twisters and lesser-rated ones yielding comparable damage and fatalities. Even worse than Waco's of that year was this Michigan monster that took 116 lives--one of the ten worst twisters in U.S. history. 113 were killed alone in Beecher with homes wiped clean off the map.
